Ruby red color with dark cherry and raspberry aromas is the calling card for our 2016 Zinfandel. It’s rich on the palate, with a balance of black currant, black cherry, and blueberry flavors. The well-integrated oak gives it a solid foundation for a wine that can stand up to a variety of foods. Enjoy this “drink now” wine with barbeque pork ribs, leg of lamb, beef stew, and chili or any big, hearty meal.
